Have you ever struggled in putting on a duvet cover? You're not alone. One of the dreaded parts of changing bedding is inserting the duvet inside the cover. It can be heavy if you're doing it yourself not to mention the amount of effort it requires. Moreover, some people might be doing it wrong! 

In this article, we share an easy way to put on a duvet cover. Like a magic trick, you won't have to break much sweat. You'll enjoy fresh, clean duvets after just a few twists and flips.

What Is A Duvet Cover?

Essentially, the cover acts as a duvet insert's protective sleeve - similar to a pillowcase for a pillow or bed sheets for a mattress. Ideally, a duvet cover in Singapore should slip over the insert with ease, making removal and thus washing convenient as well. They also can act as decorative pieces to add personality to your bedroom. 

What Are Duvets?

Many homeowners tend to mistake duvet vs quilt vs comforter as synonyms for the same type of bedding. However, they are in fact different with duvets being a somewhat modern twist to the classic quilt and comforter.

They are typically made from cloth and used as the top layer of a bed and are much loftier, lightweight, and cozy yet still excellent at temperature regulation. Therefore, they are a better option for Singapore’s weather conditions as they are able to keep hot sleepers cool during warmer nights.

Duvets in Singapore slip easily inside the cover, akin to pillows in pillow cases. Snaps, buttons, or ties inside the case keep it in place to create one secure blanket. But you may or may not use comforters or quilts with a cover.

What Are Quilts?

Quilts usually come in three parts - the bottom, inner batting, and top. The top and bottom layers are often crafted from many different scraps of fabrics stitched together to form a specific pattern.

What Are Comforters?

A duvet and comforter are both types of blanket designed to cover your body while you sleep. However, one of their differences is that a comforter is ready to use once bought as it does not require a cover. Caring for your comforter set is as simple as throwing it into the washer with your other bedding.

Due to its nature of being uncovered, a top sheet might still be needed to get you through colder days. 

Alternatively, with Singapore’s hot and humid weather, a regular blanket may be uncomfortable to use. Consider using an alternative comforter or a thinner blanket as it is more lightweight and breathable for warmer nights.

How Does A Duvet Cover Work?

Duvet covers are essentially sheets that encase and protect comforters and duvets. A duvet insert slides into the cover and is tied into place.

3 Top Benefits Of Using Duvet Covers

Offers A Lightweight Material

Choosing a modern duvet cover is one of the best choices in putting your ideal bed set together since there are options to customize the weight, warmth, and style. It is a lightweight fabric filled with duvet inserts. This is to make the material softer and fluffier without trapping too much heat in them, depending on the TOG rating.

Requires Less Maintenance

Although covers can be expensive to purchase initially, you will be able to save precious time in return because duvet sets do not have to be washed that often if you are using a duvet cover. 

Covers can be used to protect your duvet, maintain better bed hygiene, and reduce the need of washing your duvets. This helps you stay fresh and safe and saves you time for bedding maintenance as duvets themselves are much harder to wash in comparison to just their covers.

How To Put On A Duvet Cover

The secret is to turn your duvet cover inside out! Follow these two easy methods to make putting on your cover as simple as A-B-C.

The Traditional Method

  1. Firstly, lay your duvet insert over your bed.
  1. Next, lay the insert on top of the duvet cover while making sure that all the edges match up neatly.
  1. Use the corner ties to secure your insert in place by tying them tightly to the top corners of your insert.

  1. Work your hands inside the cover upwards to the top corners. Then match each corner with the corners of the duvet and flip the cover outwards over the insert.
  1. Carefully slide the cover down and over the rest of the insert. Now repeat Step 3 for the bottom layers or corners and use the concealed cloth buttons to finish.

The “Burrito” Method Or California Roll Method

This may seem a little daunting initially but with enough practice, you may find that it’s really a hack for changing a duvet cover in the most efficient way.

  1. Lay your duvet cover inside out, over your bed with the opening at the bottom of the bed.
  1. Next, lay the insert on top of the cover while making sure that all the edges match up neatly.

  1. Similar to the traditional method, use the corner ties to secure your insert in place by tying all four corners.
  1. Then, grab the opposite end of the opening of the duvet cover and roll the whole thing tightly towards the bottom of the bed, as if you’re making the world’s tightest burrito!

  1. Take the opening of the cover and pull it outwards around the roll. Fasten concealed cloth buttons to create the burrito (or sushi roll, if you prefer).
  1. Finally, pinch the matched closure and bottom edge of the insert to unravel the covered insert.

Once you are done with either method, give the whole thing a little shake and you’ll have a perfect bed covering!
